Braintree school welcomes new defibrillator after hospital shop raises cash

First published in News

Pupils and staff at a Braintree high school will benefit from a life-saving piece of equipment after a charity chipped in with funds.

Friends of Braintree Community Hospital raised £1,000 to help Alec Hunter Academy purchase a defibrillator in preparation for a Year Seven pupil starting in September who has an incurable heart disease.

Medical officer at Alec Hunter Academy Tracy Pringle said: “No baby will be dying on my watch.

“It’s a crucial resource especially in a school with over 1,200 people and I’m looking forward to never having to use it."
